Serving Ministry

We offer multiple opportunities to serve our local community through hands on events. We also designate a portion of our budget to local non-profits. Our giving and serving ministries are led by our members (all volunteers). You can read more about our current volunteer Co-Directors HERE.

Cereal Sunday update

San Pedro family members had a fun time supporting local non-profit Christian Assistance Ministries (CAM) as they provide food, shelter and assistance to our neighbors and friends around San Antonio. Folks donated over 500 boxes equaling over 4,000 individual servings of popular cereal brands.

San Pedro has a long-standing relationship with CAM, donating from our annual budget towards their operating expenses, giving clothing for their clients, and collecting specific food items as requested. To learn more about what CAM is doing in our community to provide a variety of much needed support, watch the video here:

The Joys of Serving Mobile Loaves & Fishes

Each month we witness the joys of handing out meals to our neighbors in south San Antonio. We package the meals as a team, then deliver 125 meals to two apartment complexes.

60+ children typically show up to take food back to their families. All 125 meals are given out. This is a great way to support our local community! We serve on the third Friday of every month in two teams. Sign up in the narthex after worship for next month's serving opportunity.

$11000 Gift to CAM

Christian Assistance Ministries recently suffered a fire at their warehouse facility. Our San Pedro Co-Directors of Missions, Melissa & Scott Boedeker, delivered an $11,000 check to Mary Henderson, CAM's Director of Operations & Volunteers.

From CAM's website: "CAM experienced a fire that has done considerable damage to our warehouse which is the heart of so much that we do and enables us to provide resources to so many. This warehouse is located on the Campus of Grace Lutheran Church at our downtown location (110 McCullough). At this time, we are seeking your support through prayer and any financial contribution you would like to make in order for us to quickly repair and replace items."

San Pedro is also signing people up for hands-on work to clean up CAM's warehouse. You'll hear details in worship with opportunities to sign-up in the narthex after worship. You can also register to help through CAM's website.

Thank you to all our San Pedro members who give generously. Your faithfulness is why we are able to give away extra financial assistance to our friends who serve God at other non-profits during their times of need.

Meet the Boedekers

San Pedro is pleased to announce Scott and Melissa Boedeker have answered the call to serve as the new co-directors of our Missions Team! This volunteer position works with our members who coordinate opportunities to serve our local, national and international missions opportunities. They will be attending staff meetings, publicizing events, and acting as our point of contact with the local non-profits we support.

The Boedekers moved to San Antonio just over a year ago, coming from the west coast where they were based for Scott's military service. Their family is excited to join another of Dr Stamper's churches (they were members of his San Diego church). 

Texas is not entirely new for Melissa, who is originally from El Paso. She is a Texas Aggie, earning her degree in Biomedical Engineering and then her Masters in Health Systems at Georgia Tech. She worked as a healthcare consultant for several years. Scott grew up in Tulsa, OK, attended the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, then went on to serve 20 years as a Naval Aviator. He then worked as a civilian for the Department of the Navy as a program manager in San Diego. He served several deployments aboard aircraft carriers while on active duty and spent one year on the ground in Iraq while on loan to the Army. 

Scott and Melissa married in 1996 and spent most of Scott’s Naval career in San Diego, with just a two year break in Monterey, CA, while Scott attended the Naval Postgraduate School. Their daughter, Madeleine, was born in 2004 and is now a sophomore at Texas A&M! When she decided to head to the great state of Texas for college, she asked Scott and Melissa to move to Texas too - so they did (true story!). She enjoys having her parents close, but not too close. So Scott and Melissa are now empty nesters, with just their youngest girl at home - a sweet 9 year old rescue pup, Winnie (pictured).

Scott, Melissa and Madeleine enjoy traveling as a family and they all love living in Texas! They've traveled to 12 National Parks together this year and had a blast exploring Utah, South Dakota, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming this summer. Here in SA, Scott enjoys sailing at Canyon Lake and flying radio controlled airplanes. Melissa is involved with the San Antonio Chapter of the Aggie Moms Club and volunteers weekly with one of our missions partners, CAM (Christian Assistance Ministries). 

From Scott and Melissa, "We look forward to meeting more friends at San Pedro and serving on Missions with many of you. We're new, so we'd love to work with as many long-serving and brand new members (like us). Let's bless our local neighbors and show the love of Christ like so many great people who've been at San Pedro have done over the years."

Please make the Boedekers feel welcome, and take this opportunity to get involved with missions at San Pedro!
